Review of Recent Literature on Educational Diffusion Research.
Piele, Philip K.
This report reviews the increasing numbers of case studies, technical guides, and theory-oriented reports that bear on the successful diffusion of new instructional programs and their local adoption. The author separates these reports and articles into four categories: (1) case studies of educational innovation diffusion, (2) theory-oriented studies that draw upon particular instances of educational innovation to determine factors that influence successful diffusion and adoption of innovative programs, (3) studies that focus on particular school personnel as determinants of program diffusion and adoption, and (4) reports that define local, State, and national communication networks as agents of adoption and diffusion. A selected bibliography is included. (Author/JF)
